Colin Whitt & family, Four Minimo owners, Derbyshire
“As I have Cerebral Palsy and my wife has severe Arthritis, we really struggled to get out before owning our Minimos. I was the first to own a Minimo, which was brilliant for mobility outside, however this meant my wife couldn’t join me and was missing out on my new experiences. I did own a scooter before, however the Minimo has a range of up to 12 miles on one battery charge, double anything I’ve owned before. So driving further is now possible without any worries. Linda had to have one and when my parents saw the difference our Minimos had made, they decided to get one each too!
Not only do we find the Minimo great to drive, its ability to collapse into a small size is excellent for fitting in a cupboard. Also as my parents live in a bungalow, they can store their Minimos safely and securely in their hallway where space is limited. The lithium batteries are so lightweight we can literally pick them up with one finger for strain-free charging.
Now we are all mobile, we are taking our Minimos on holiday to Hastings and walking our Shetland sheepdog Toby is no problem, or should I say letting him ride on the floor well, he loves it!
